Forget that stuffy hotel atmosphere you get elsewhere—now you can kick back and dine in style. You have your pick of four restaurants and bars—all with typical Hard Rock attitude and flair.

Hard Rock Hotel Dining - The Kitchen

The Kitchen At Hard Rock Hotel
The hotel's full service restaurant is like the wide open kitchen of a mega-rock star mansion. The Kitchen's walls are adorned with food-themed memorabilia from many celebrity guests that have come to the Hard Rock Hotel. Visiting rock stars have even performed cooking demonstrations of their favorite dishes at the Chef's Table, and afterward their personalized cooking utensils and apparel are put on the restaurant's "Apron Wall." No matter who's staying at the Hard Rock Hotel, sooner or later you'll wanna hang out in The Kitchen!

Hard Rock Hotel Dining - Palm Restaurant

The Palm Restaurant at Hard Rock Hotel
World-renowned for its prime cuts of meat and succulent Nova Scotia lobsters, Palm Restaurant is the perfect place for a hearty meal in a classic New York style atmosphere. The cartoon caricatures of celebrities drawn on the walls hearken back to the original Palm Restaurant's roots in the newspaper district of Manhattan, where famous cartoonists would often exchange drawings for their meals. Call ahead for reservations.

Portofino Bay Resort - Villa Pool Day Velvet Bar
Voted as one of the Best Hotel Bars in all of Orlando, drop in for a chilled Martini or cocktail, or kick back with some appetizers and enjoy the tunes. Velvet Bar hosts THE cocktail party on the last Thursday of each month. Each "session" combines creative cocktails and finger foods with live music from some of the nation's hottest bands.

Whether you're sunbathing, playing in the sand or just hanging out, this poolside bar and grill is THE place to be for a light snack or a refreshing cocktail.

Emack & Bolio's
Located just off the pool, this ice cream cafe is the perfect way to cool off on a hot Florida day. Exotic flavors such as Bye Bye Miss American Mud Pie, Deep Purple Cow, and Jumping Jack Grasshopper Pie are just a few of the offbeat and fun treats available.
